Yeah I got the same and just notified dom and all fixed now

Maybe we need to make some money to extend our limit.

Doesn't happen much (only second time since I have been here) but we tend to be getting more traffic lately and so that would suck it up.

I'd be willing to donate a few bucks to help out...

This site has been very helpful to myself.

thanks everyone for understanding
The traffic on this forum/website grows every month, it's great because it means our community is growing and that more and more people are fingind our tutorials/articles as well. CI always seem to be the one that catches the 'bandwidth exceeded' message right away, and always let's me know immidiately lol.

At one point something needs to put some bucks back in, so it's not just a one way street (expenses), but we're fine for now. I did play around with showing a google ad for all guests (not members), let's see how that goes. I might add a 'paypal donate' button for people likeTstright, but I don't think it's needed yet either.

you could use file size restrictions on image uploads which may help

davidj,
you have to be an expert there and get the premium account for free
I was the first certified dreamweaver expert at Experts Exchange.. was the only one for a while, but now there's plenty lol (and I had to answer a whole lota questions to get it, all for a t-shirt they never sent)

good ideas from all, thanks, I'll add it to my list to review when we get to the point where it's needed.

I believe it will be a good idea to add a simple donation button which can help our forums for growing bandwidth requirements.

I am ready to save a pint money every week for that.
